We have yet to have much success I think our climate is really too hot sometimes! Children have the best time with hands-on learning when using sensory bins! Each carrot has a letter of the alphabet on it. To set up the carrot garden sensory bin, find a plastic bin to use for this activity.
In my preschool classroom, I use 2 sizes of bins and trays depending on how many of my preschoolers I would like to play at one time. For this activity, I set it up to be played individually, so the plastic bin I used was small enough for one child to play in.
Add dried split peas to the plastic container. Print the alphabet carrots from the link below on white cardstock paper. Laminate the set of alphabet carrots for added durability, especially if you have multiple children playing at once.
Cut the carrots apart, and add them to the garden of split peas. Different Ways to Play There is nothing better than playing in a sensory bin!
My preschoolers in my classroom love dry sensory bins filled with rice, beans, and split peas. There is something so soothing about running your hands through the filler. The object of adding the carrots to the sensory bin is to encourage alphabet knowledge through exposure to the uppercase letters during play.
Adding a fine motor aspect to this carrot alphabet garden sensory bin is easy to do! You can add tongs, tweezers, chopsticks, or clothespins to pull the carrots out of the garden.
To do this, you may need to print multiple sets of alphabet carrots.
This will help your child practice naming the letters and build confidence each time another letter that she has seen before is pulled! My preschooler has started to read, and is ready to spell simple words with the sounds she hears.
To add a little challenge to the sensory bin, I used simple CVC words to make a game for her. I would put the first and last letter in a CVC words on the table.
In the photo below, the words H-A-T is shown. I had put the H and the T on the table and she had to fill in the correct vowel to make a real word. She searched through the carrots in the garden with her clothespin until she came across the A.
We played this over and over! She was a huge fan of searching and coming up with the vowel in the word on her own. Grab your Copy Ready to make an alphabet sensory bin of your own?
